Children’s Rights: 30 EBI students express their feelings to the Prime Minister

Praia, 21 Nov (Inforpress) – Members of the 4th “Rights Caravan”, made up of 30 students from Integrated Basic Education (EBI), were received by the Prime Minister, Ulisses Correia e Silva, to whom they expressed their feelings for the defense and promotion of their rights.

Promoted by the Association of Disadvantaged Children (ACRIDES), as part of the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989), marked Wednesday 20, the symbolic handing over of balloons with children’s rights messages took place this morning, in the delivery hall of the Government Palace where the head of government was accompanied by the members of the government.

At the occasion, the president of ACRIDES, Lourença Tavares, explained that the idea is to make these children express and demonstrate their feelings of everyday life, and some of these messages are their life experiences.

The initiative, she said, is to make the Government aware of the concerns and problems these children face in their daily lives. “The act is to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which Cabo Verde ratified, make gains, but more work needs to be done and some other interventions need to be improved to effectively promote children’s rights,” suggested Lourenço Tavares, who said the health sector remains “glaring” especially at the psychological level.
